Really great good. Surprising.

I have been exploring different ways to eat and decided to look up vegetarian places while I was in town. This placed seemed to be recommended a lot so I have it a try.

I found this restaurant via a top-10 America vegan restaurant list and thought I'd try it out. Sadly it was not up to our expectation, besides their version of Mac and cheese, everything else was too obsessively spiced with thyme and rather boring. Our salad was super soggy as if it was standing in the kitchen for a while and... More

Had a nice dinner there. The mac and yease was as good as everyone said it was. I thought that my tempeh dish was tasty, but there was way to much grease at the bottom of the dish. The buffalo Portobello mushroom burger was excellent. It's kind of pricy. Most of the the g/f dishes were a couple of dollars... More

I just love Plum. I try to visit as often as I can- their food is just that good! Best vegan food in Seattle hands down.

We were so pleased to find a vegan dining place. While having dinner here, we had excellent service. The server was very patient as we asked questions and studied the menu for our selections. We had the french onion soup, macaroni and "cheese" and ended w/ a brownie w/vegan ice cream. We enjoyed each dish. While dessert was very good... More

This is the place to go for wonderful vegan and vegetarian offerings. A traditional small bistro with its own simple rustic charm. When people go to this style of restaurant they often complain that the food is boring, tasteless and expensive. If you say that about Plum then you are indeed boring and tasteless. If I would offer and suggestions,... More

This place is amazing. About a 30 minute wait for a table on a Saturday night. There are so many options to choose from. It's a small place so it was fairly quiet to have a conversation. Service is a little slow because it seemed that there was only 1, possibly 2 servers. The flavors in the food were spot... More

Great food and incredible vegan brunch with tons of yummy options, like pancakes, waffles, scrambles, etc. Kids loved the vegan macaroni & cheese.

I was there awhile ago when visiting my daughter and her boyfriend in Seattle. I eat little meat and they are vegan but It doesn't matter what your diet this place is top notch, appealing to any taste. The menu varies according to what's in season and the service is upscale. If you are in Seattle looking for a vegan... More

I'm normally not crazy about a joint that has so few dishes from which to choose, but I guess that's where 'bistro' comes into play. I'm also not crazy about a joint that charges a lot of money for basic dishes I can, and do, make myself. We found ourselves near Plum and decided to try it. My husband ordered... More
